Hiking

Over 180 medieval villages, castles and residences witness the cultural history that shines on even to our present day.

Eppan is a unique experience. The mild climate is ideal for wonderful hikes, the Mediterranean vegetation is a feast to the eyes and regenerates body and soul.

The region is famous for the wonderful walking tours through the many medieval villages. Imposing towers, battlements and fortifications bring us back to the spirit of the middle ages and we drift into the world of knights and chivalry.

Enjoy the unforgettable experience of a day on the Dolomites.

The holiday location Eppan is renowned worldwide for having the highest concentration of medieval villages.

Swimming

Not far from the castle you can enjoy swimming in the idyllic lakes of Monticolo and Caldaro. The latter being the warmest lake in South Tyrol, remains a favourite amongst both tourists and locals.

In summer you can enjoy swimming in the small lake and the big lake of Monticolo…

Golf

The estate of the golf club Freudenstein Castle is just a few meters away. The golf academy of Freudenstein Castle offers a variety of courses and training schemes on its beautiful driving range with pitching area and putting green.

Since 2015 in the neighbouring Unterrain-Eppan there is the golf course “The Blue Monster” covering 10,000 square metres. The typical landscape of this area was preserved with its natural ponds. The golf course is therefore exceptionally attractive for the golf player, but also demonstrates a high level of ecological commitment.

Cycling

With its valleys and hills, woods, orchards and vineyards, gentle slopes or challenging altitudes, the area offers a great variety of landscapes.

The cycle ways in Eppan and along the South Tyrolean wine road are renowned for their natural beauty. You can cycle through the sweet smelling orchards and vineyards enjoying the stunning views and exploring the picturesque villages and hamlets of the Überetschs region.
